Striped Sweater + Floral Dress

by dietingfashion on March 20, 2012

Top: Madewell Theo Striped Sleeve Sweater (exact here)
Dress: Jason Wu for Target Floral Dress with Belt (just the skirt part here, similar here)
Shoes: Ann Taylor Perfect Leather Pumps (similar here)
Tights: Hue Criss Cross Diamond Tights (here)
Jewelry: Jewelmint Midnight Soiree Ring (similar here), Ann Taylor Loft Necklace (similar here)

It seems like overnight that Houston went from high 70s to low 50s. I had already planned on wearing my Jason Wu dress for work however with the change in weather, it was just too cold. I got lazy to change, so I added a sweater over the dress. I think I should have added a thinner sweater, but this Madewell was just too comfy.

I think I prefer this sweater over the J. Crew Honeycomb sweater. It is lighter weight than J. Crew’s Honeycomb and I like the striped sleeves. It has a youthful feel to it while J. Crew has a classic look.

Have you ever been too lazy to change in to weather appropriate attire?

Girl’s Night [Out]fit – High Waisted Mini Skirt

by dietingfashions on December 1, 2011

Top: Ann Taylor Loft Sequin Short Sleeve Sweater
Bottom: Juicy Couture Lace Skirt
Scarf: Madewell Long Stem Roses Scarf
Shoes: Naturalizer Bates Booties

When I think of a good outfit to go hang with my girlfriends, I usually grab a skirt and heels. I don’t know why. I believe those two components just makes an outfit fun and feminine. I do like how the sequins of the shirt sparkle and shine. The sweater is very light weight and comfy. However, it’s very thin and the knit does catch on zippers (like the Juicy Couture skirt). I was able to straighten the knit out so no harm done. It’s getting really chilly in Houston, so the scarf by itself would not do. I am waiting for my cape to come in so hopefully it’ll be warm enough with this outfit.

This is my oldest, Megan. She wanted to be in the pictures but I think she was getting sleepy (due to that mean glare from her face). She’s very fashionable at 3 yrs old. And she will veto what I wear. By the way, I purchase the Juicy Couture skirt from Shopbop.com for a higher price. I had missed that Net-a-Porter had a sale going on and had the skirt at $40 cheaper than shopbop.com. Also if you like the skirt, it is meant to be worn high up. If you like it lower to your hips, buy a size up. My skirt is size 6 and I like it. It’s thinly lined though.

I chose the scarf for it’s French Paisian look. The soft colors worn with a slight bow at the neck. I love Madewell clothing. I think it’s durable and feminine. The scarf was also purchased from Shopbop.com. I have been a shopbop.com customer for a while but it’s only recently that I started shopping there again. I love the 2 day shipping and easy returns. I will probably return the skirt though, since Net-a-Porter is offering deeper discounts.

This outfit is a challenge from cuteandlittle.com. If you like my outfit, please vote for me here. Thank you!
